Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: -- Best Morning Dew ever!!! It's right here in the notes

This Dew is fantastic! I haven't listened to it enough but I remember being blown away by the grace of the playing. The final jam is Jerry doing a very nice chord solo but he isn't furiously shredding but instead finessing it ever so sweetly. Oh yeah and the way they drop right back into heavy psychedelia right after the final chord in Dew is breathtaking. You really need the soundboard for 3-23-74 because there is one single individual close to the audience microphone loudly clapping along, off time, for the majority of the suite.

I enjoy the 2-14-68 Dew probably just because I've listened to it so many times but also because Jerry's voice is so nice in the 60's! Also, 5-6-70 is a very powerful version for me, heavy emotion 2 days after Kent State.

The one from February '74 is absolutely incendiary but I think it is a little sloppy as well.

I know there are some really great Morning Dews from after the European tour, especially coming out of Dark Star. Any recommendations?
